Afternoon

15:40 - 16:45

15:40 - Tura-Shaked Checkpoint

The checkpoint is quiet.  Pedestrians and cars pass in two directions.  They tell us that the checkpoint was opened this morning at 07:00 (instead of 06/30}.

16:05 - Barta'a-Reihan Checkpoint

Hundreds of workers, most of them young, go down quickly to the terminal, to the West Bank.  People who recently received new permits to cross over the the Seamline Zone, but with prohibitions to enter Israel, turn to us:  They don't know the reason for this prohibition.  Perhaps it is because some of them have relatives in prisons? People, women with children and students, return from the West Bank to the Seamline Zone.
